At High Gear we are working with Uber taxi drivers on a constant basis, partnering taxi drivers with tailored insurance policies. With more and more Uber taxis filling the streets of the UK each and every week we at High Gear Insurance have never been so in-demand, catering to the driver’s need for modern insurance.
What is Uber?Uber is a taxi-booking application that is proving to be an incredibly popular way for the people of the UK to travel; making use of modern technology when arranging transport. ‘By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through our apps, we make cities more accessible, opening up more possibilities for riders and more business for drivers’ states the revolutionary firm. With pre-booked taxis being a more structured way to run a taxi business insurance prices can actually work out cheaper than for cars used for traditional hailing purposes.
Uber and SafetyAccording to Uber safety is a huge part of their business focus, wanting to offer the most efficient, secure service possible. On their official website they say: ‘Wherever you are around the world, Uber is committed to connecting you to the safest ride on the road. That means setting the strictest safety standards possible, then working hard to improve them every day. The specifics vary depending on what local governments allow, but within each city we operate, we aim to go above and beyond local requirements to ensure your comfort and security’.
